In which year is it now in the MCU?
Warning! Full SPOILERS for Avengers: Endgame!
The upcoming sequel Spider-Man: Far from Home takes place not long after the events of Avengers: Endgame, which experienced a significant leap in time for its characters, reviving those who fall into it: Infinity War five years later. IGN has discovered that not only Peter Parker but also many of those closest to him include.
Endgame begins just weeks after the events of the Infinity War, which was discontinued in 201
That is, when a resurrected Peter Parker (Tom Holland) returns to school In Endgame's coda, many of his classmates have completed college in high school. Peter is clearly not the only boy in the MCU in this situation, as the Coda reunites him at school with his best buddy Ned (Jacob Batalon).
As a senior source for Marvel Studios, she told IGN: Thanos' snapshot eliminated 50% of all life – and 100% of Peter's friends. "
This means that MJ (Zendaya) died in Infinity War as well, which is why Peter, Ned and MJ are still at full speed school in Spider-Man: Far from Home.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Fege confirmed to IGN, just before Infinity War appeared last year, that Far From Home is going to Endgame. Feige said at the time that Far From Home Peter was competing with the events of the third and fourth Avengers films, "What is it like trying to start a normal life after what happens in this film [Infinity War] "Not to mention what happens in the next movie from 19459017."
"It's fun to see because he can portray the world as a whole as they try to move forward," Feige said, "and you can do it in a tonally unique and tonally different way than the two Avengers movies that people will soon see. "
The MCU timeline was generally the year an MCU stands, That's why the battle of New York will be finalized in 2012, the year Marvel's The Avengers was released, of course, Spider-Man: Homecoming unimaginably messed everything up at its opening in 2017 , when he said the Battle of New York took place eight years earlier, which would have happened in 2009 instead of 2012. And just to make things even more confusing It turned out that Homecoming actually took place in 2016, the same year as Captain America: Civil War, which means the Avengers would have to take place in 2008. But Endgame clearly confirms that the Battle of Manhattan took place in 2012, Spider-Man: Homecoming messed up.
